It’s not all about the cake.. sometimes it’s about the ice cream too..

The weekend weather forecast just seemed to improve as the week progressed, and Sunday morning saw it only slightly overcast, but a pleasant temperature and little wind. The Wild Wales posse were already on their way as the few that were left met at the club. There weren’t many there, but what we lacked in […]

The Guardian Cup 2016 & The Fina...

So, who won? Well, if you have been following the results trend over the last few weeks, you’ll have seen that Dave Wilkinson has been improving steadily over the year, enabling him to maximise his points. By last week, only Rich Munro could get near. This was not to be though, as Dave did enough, […]

WVCC Club 10s – Guardian Cup Ro...

It was a drizzly night, yet 15 intrepid riders came out, with some to see if they could improve their overall placings in the Guardian Cup. In reach of the trophy were series leader Dave Wilkinson, and Rich Munro – in grabbing distance of the prize. This is where the drama started, as Rich had […]

WVCC Open 25 Mile Time Trial – ...

Bright sunshine, a strong field and a healthy number of club volunteers meant that this looked like it would be a good, and potentially fast day. As the day started, and the first results came in, we weren’t waiting long till Lee Winslow of Wills Wheels CC stormed over the line with a 59:03, but soon followed […]

WVCC Club 10s – Guardian Cup Ro...

A massively windy, gusty night only brought 11 entrants to this evening’s 10, and with time running out in the Guardian Cup series, there was a feeling of ‘nothing to lose, everything to gain’ with the determined faces at the start line. Some riders will have benefited from the tail wind on parts of the […]

WVCC Club 25 – 2016 Championshi...

A bright and cool night greeted the riders competing for the glory of the Club 25. Spirits were high, and the Lee appeared(!) Everyone knew that they were racing for 2nd place. 🙂 A slight headwind along Penny’s Lane would mean that times would be gained on the fast run along the A530 – King […]

WVCC Club 10s – Guardian Cup Ro...

Well, here we are, a week after major traffic jams and club championships settled, back to the long game of Guardian Cup points, fast times, and a more subtle battle than last year as we complete round 8. The night was a good one, with some great times and many a PB set. Fast seasoned […]

WVCC Club 10s – 2016 Championsh...

Fortunately this evening, many managed to battle through the chaotic traffic to get to the 10, and some excellent times were posted. No doubt who the winners were from the evening, when Lee turned up, it was to be his night, with a superb 21:24 to take gold. Speedy and consistent Jim Duffy took silver […]

WVCC Club 10s – Guardian Cup Ro...

Well, we are well into the last half of this year’s competition, and this week there were some good times steady times set. Lee romped home with the fastest time, as he does every time he turns up – unless Matt Nowell pays a visit of course, and after an on course incident, where Strava […]

Two Mills Club Run – A case of ...

What a difference a few days makes in weather terms. As I rolled up at the club, I already felt overdressed with arm warmers on, so peeled them off at stuffed them into my saddlebag. The clear and warm weather brought plenty out, and two runs were set on their respective journeys, with Paul navigating […]

WVCC Club 10s – Guardian Cup Ro...

After a rainy day, it looks like the few riders that took to the course picked a break in an otherwise wet and windy day. Some times meant big things this evening though, as Dave Fearon romped ahead to clinch the fastest time of the evening, followed by a pre-washed Jim from the Mersey Ferry […]

I left the house without my rain jacket on, and within 6 feet, put it on as it started to rain. Well, we were warned, but nevertheless, a baker’s dozen gathered at the swing bridge with the skies delivering the promise of precipitation already. We thus set off promptly from Sutton Weaver, knowing that we […]

As a club, we’d like to wish Andrew Simpson @simmo_on_sport all the best for the future, with a heartfelt thanks for supporting WVCC all these years....
